Document the "Local Administrator Password Solution" (LAPS) settings

The Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) provides the ability to automatically update local administrator account passwords for domain joined computers.

This can help increase security by

  • Settings local administrator passwords to different values on each computer and member server, whereas typically administrators set the same local admin password on each machine
  • Passwords can be changed more frequently
  • Local admin passwords can be obtained directly from Active Directory

If you want more information about LAPS this video is pretty informative

We've updated the XIA Configuration Server to automatically gather these settings for each of your domain joined machines.

The settings collected include

  • Installed
  • Enabled
  • DLL File Location
  • DLL Version
  • Administrator Account Name
  • Password Age (Days)
  • Password Length
  • Password Expiration Protection Enabled
  • Password Complexity Type
